Background Gps

by Nick Coury

Track GPS location updates in the background.

Nativescript Background GPS Plugin


This plugin does not currently work in the background. The project is exploratory to create a simple background GPS service, but thus far it is not working.

This is a plugin to receive gps location updates regardless of the app state.

Getting started

  1. tns plugin add nativescript-background-gps


import { gps } from 'nativescript-background-gps';

gps.on(function (location) { console.log(location); }


This project uses source code from nativescript-geolocation under the Apache 2.0 license. Changes can be found in the file.
